Local students in years 3 to 6 have the opportunity get creative in the lead up to Christmas to win great prizes and have their artwork feature on the official Christmas Card of Federal Member for McPherson Karen Andrews.
“With the final term for the school year now underway, I am pleased to once again launch my annual McPherson Christmas Card Drawing Competition,” Mrs Andrew said.
“We had some wonderful entries last year – and our winning entries were seen by all local residents in the form a Christmas Card delivered to all households.”
Mrs Andrews said the theme for the drawing was “Christmas on the Gold Coast” and that students in years 3 to 6 attending a school in McPherson on the southern Gold Coast were eligible to enter.
“This drawing competition is a great way for students to get their creative thinking caps on and start getting excited about Christmas. We have wonderful prizes on offer as well.”
“Winners in each year category will get a bumper book pack, and the overall winner will receive a massive Art and Book hamper with all they need to further encourage their artistic flair.”
Mrs Andrews said that entries close on October 26 and the winner would be judged by a local panel, with judges looking for creativity, colour and interpretation of the Gold Coast theme.
“Entry forms have been sent to local schools and are also available by contacting my office on 5580 9111. I am pleased to be able to showcase our local young artists and look forward to seeing this year’s entries,” Mrs Andrews said.
